Dark tobacco brown color with off white head. Maple roast malty dunkel aroma. Wow, really good dunkel, so many dunkel a are just a malty flat mess. Certainly malty but clean without the yeast flavor of an ail that just not pair well with a malty beer like this. Biscuits, roast, hints of hob bitter, and a "clean" finish. Thanks dlovell2 for sharing.

Pours a deep brown with an off white head. Nose is slight roasted malt. Body is medium. Taste is under achieved roasted/dark malt with a slight - hardly detectable - sweetness that finishes dry with little bitterness. 12 oz bottle

Pint at The Blue Stone. Very deep brown with a tight, light tan head. Restrained dark-roasted malt, clean fermentation, a bit grainy, dry, moderate bitterness, straight-forward and well made.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks John! Pours reddish brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, grain, and yeast. Taste is malt, grain, yeast, and caramel. Pretty good.

Pours cola into a shaker. Off white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Mild caramel aromas. Medium bodied with dark caramel and earthy hops turning to mild cocoa in the medium length finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s. Poured a dark chestnut brown with crimson edges. Thin beige head. Aroma, although weak, hints at molasses, brown sugar and dark bread. Semi sweet with more dark baked bread, burnt sugar and roasted malt. Thin palate, could of been fuller. Didn’t like it as much as I wanted to.

I want to like this beer more than I do. It’s an enjoyable and well-made brew; however, it is just a bit too sweet and really reminds me more of a brown ale at the finish. Not nuanced enough to be an appropriate dunkel lager, but still a nice beer.

Smooth and sweet roasted malt aroma. Although it may look black if held to up to a light bulb it’ll show deep mahogany red. It’s topped by a modest of white head. Silk smooth sweet roasted malt taste. Wet and clean finish. Excellent brew.

Dark garnet pour with minimal head and no retention. Aromas are roasty, toasty and malt. Flavor is a bit different with some nice semi-sweet caramel up front, finishing very balanced with mild hops. Well done dunkel.

Deep auburn color with a decent off white head. Rich maillard notes with hints of bready pilsner and a touch of floral spicy hops. Nice dark lager.
